How the BlackBerry 8220 Pearl Flip Compares to 81xx SmartPhones...
The BlackBerry Pearl 8220 smartphone puts you in charge of how, when and where you communicate.
- Screen calls and preview messages on the external screen
- Use the internal display for messaging, maps, and more
- Type with one or two thumbs on the large keyboard
Better screen resolution and double the flash memory are definite pluses. Too bad they didn't give it GPS capabilities. I love the full QWERTY on my 8330 Curve but started out on the 8130 Pearl.
This new 8220 will be a really awesome 1st BB for those just venturing into the smartphone world and those who prefer the flip-phone style. Another one I can't wait to go to the store and fondle when it comes out
I think it will be good for anyone who loves Blackberries.
I am personally excited about it, and I already gave my brother my 8100, my mom will now have my 8320, and I will have the 8220.
The touch screen looks disappointing.
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ it has touch screen?
I think he was referring to the video of the "Ninja" and his BB Storm/Thunder.
The more I look at this flip phone, I am starting to like it. I have T-Mobile, and due for a upgrade! But pondering if I should really wait for the Javelin??????
SO many choices!!!!!
I loved flip phones for years so this would be an easy option for me. I also am a diehard ST user so this looks mighty tasty.
Yeah, I was talking about that video, which made the Storm/Thunder look WEAK!
I also have an upgrade, and ready to use it.
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i just want to get it for the youtube and better screen resolution
~via 8120 (wap.pinstack.com)~
I wish I had waited to use my upgrade. I knew this was gonna come out after I upgraded.
Does anyone know when this blackberry is coming out? It looks too cute!
Wow!! I,m not due for an upgrade until April so maybe they'll have all the bugs worked out. I love my pearl the only thing I miss is being able to flip it open but not anymore!~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
I don't like the Pearl, but I sure like that flip.
T-Mobile HTC Touch Pro2 & I'm not coming back! :D
I really dont like it. A flip blackberry just doesnt seem right to me. I hope they dont put a flip on the curve..
Insert catchy phrase here..
Some people made similar comments when we evolved from track-wheel to track-ball- but I totally hear ya.

The external screen capabilities and the tilt-on-side for wide screen seem cool-silly turning a flip phone on its side- but cool result nonetheless. And the lack of GPS sucks chicken arse - but if I weren't such a BB Thunder desperado - I would be able to see my logical progression from Nextel 7520- to tmobile 8100- to sprint and now Verizon 8130 - to 8220
PS I really really really can't fathom why RIM made the 8350 the Nextel curve- that iDEN service is practically a an exctinction waiting to happen- better off saving the whales !
